I suppose the chips on your shoulders do most of your thinking and speaking Surprise, but, I believe exactly the opposite of your quick draw response. I believe government is the one breaking up families with their "feeling" approach to poverty. I believe that all races value family, but the government supersedes the role of fathers and replaces them. It has nothing to do with race.

How many new restaurants have opened in Seattle during this period. By the looks of the numbers, a ton. So we are saying that increasing wages actually caused a huge upswing in new restaurants with new jobs? 2500 jobs in one month? Is that like 100 restaurants? Did construction go up also? By how much?

Not just the food industry, but others affected by the $15 per hour wage. Washington, who has had a very good economy of late, has saw little movement in the welfare and public assistance roles. You guys can look up articles yourself
Remember there were reports that many employees were asking for less hours now that they could make more with less hours. This way, they did not risk making too much and losing their free stuff Twice as many employees making twice as much and still getting gov benefits and all while flipping the same amount of burgers overall as before. Can we fix problems or what?
